We are looking for an officer to represent the Local Authority at First Tier SENDIST (Special Educational Needs and Disability Tribunal) tribunal hearings and to facilitate ongoing work in reducing the number of appeals to SENDIST and to lead on the resolution of appeals as they arise.
This post is within the ISEND (Inclusion Special Educational Needs and Disability) Assessment and Planning team. You will have knowledge and understanding of current SEN legislation and reform, statutory procedures and processes governing the provision of services for children with special educational needs.
East Sussex County Council is committed to working effectively with parents to meet the needs of children with SEND (Special Educational Needs and Disability) in their local community and this is an exciting opportunity to join us in championing change for children!
